investigative journalist and a former l.a.p.d. officer himself. says there are many skeletons in the alley he's causing. i don't condone what's happened and i want to violence and killing to end but more important i want him to be brought in alive which is something i do not think that l.a.p.d. law enforcement or the u.s. government wants under any circumstances with regard to his specific allegations about his case and i'm currently reviewing legal documents that are becoming available online i have to tell you that with regard to his allegations about a rich trial board hearings and very egregious unprofessional coverup excessive force but also management mouth mouth these things perjury and a lot of other serious things i believe in one hundred percent the l.a.p.d. has been shown has a consistent cultural problem with racism cover up and cronyism within the

department that has victimized i think and probably driven out a great many good officers i left for similar reasons it appears a medal is too much to ask for code into the u.k. which is refusing its veterans a russian on its moscow ones to reward british troops for bravery in world war two you specifically say listen got it critical convoys that supply the u.s. a sop but as our g.'s in we have done is going pull it so that's not something london is willing to allow. imagine doing a service to a foreign country during a time of war risking your life going through unimaginable hardships all in the name of helping you know like you imagine that country wanting to reward you with a medal of honor and then imagine your own government refused to allow you to accept that medal for rather ambiguous reasons that's precisely what's happening to several hundred veterans in the u.k. the russian government wanted to award them the medal for their service in the

arctic convoy during world war two but the foreign and commonwealth office has refused the request saying that they appreciate the move from moscow but they simply cannot be granted because current rules dictates foreign medals can only be accepted within five years of the events occurring but the british government is promising to soon create a medal to honor u.k. troops who participated in the arctic convoys now the convoys delivered thousands of anti tank guns and fighter planes to the u.s.s.r. between one hundred forty one in one thousand nine hundred five the road to went from north america iceland and the u.k. it's may look simple enough on the map but it was anything but that the conway's were constantly attacked by german u. boats ships and planes and when in humans of one of the problems the convoys often fell victim to the horrendous storms in the icy cold waters of the arctic that was some seventy years ago and many of the veterans feel they may not live to see the

day the u.k. very wards them with its old version of the nettled and for some there is a feeling of bitterness feeling they are being refused a medal that they truly deserve or tycho wife not just from a bold mothership might post a present. to may. also we were what we did we're made to do we went to do job. another think that. was always on russian convoys i know another. guy on the group geo you know mother ship might know all there was a governmental has been created to reward those fighting at sea for bravery it's one of the highest military decoration in russia its importance as such but it has been retained from the soviet union era because of the madly two defeats it was awarded for so there are shoes a will to let a foreign government honor their service in the greatest war of modern history makes veterans wonder what's behind the reason if it had been america go for this
1:20 am
medal which are not served on the american idol when i was in shanghai and china cities but. how many sorry they were to offer me a medal what would be to their written the government's response to the. for their parts many british veterans such as john c. opening receptive to the idea of a medal coming from russia while the owner did yes just to have possession and so i have a few years ago left if a few years. and it down to meet killed me grant you i mean surprise possession to may just not only beddoes but it's coming from russia had been there this will be extra special but unfortunately in their decision making process it appears the u.k. government did not consider the feelings of its country's veterans. as
